abuse and bullying of students at martin luther king. well, i would say there was a thorough investigation and the staff involved in that incident haven't been interviewed bit management at the school district. so what kind of thorough investigation was done by school district about the bullying of students at martin luther king school? furthermore we just heard about the charter school and want a music room bechtel and the program are involve in san francisco as are other privatization companis who want to privatize the schools and drive the schools towards core standards. i would argue that is for the destruction of education. it's not the advance of students of san francisco and the students of this country. core standards are being used not to provide more teaching, more education, but to drive more testing and to drive really the students out and further privatization of the school. another issue was a video done of this incident at the school. there was a video done of the physical abuse of the student at the school and apparently amos brown was able to see that video.

politics a long time ago in the form of the reverend martin luther king and jesse jackson and the reverend ralf david abernathy etc., etc., etc.. the religious right was provoked into politics. the tradition among many protestants was political quietism. in the supreme court decided that the constitution required that there would be an excursion of religion from the public square in the removal of prayer from schools, deeply offended a great number of americans and then 40 years ago next month with roe v wade, they delivered the final publication that to deliver a great many people into politics for the legitimate political purpose of trying to save as they thought the american culture to read a great many people work themselves up into what i must call a synthetic frenzied about the threat of theocracy. anyone with the slightest in the supreme court ruling on the establishment clause down to the point at which it becomes a matter of major litigation to have a crush on the post office lawn knows that we are so far from any possible menaced of religious orthodoxy in this country to
